Ursinus is a great College if you are in Bio/Chem track. There are many resources for science classes. Campus is relatively small, so you can easily create relationships on campus. One thing that Ursinus has to change is tuition costs.

My school offers amazing support in helping me succeed. Professors always offer their help and have office hours almost every day for your every need. The courses are very challenging but I know I am getting the best education and I am active student athlete and I find professors to be extremely helpful and supportive of how I must balance my time.
